JSI Tip 9140. When you hot plug an Intel 1000P PCI Express network adaptor into Windows Server 2003 you are prompted to restart?

Mini Glossary

Hot plug ("hot plugging" or "hot adding") - Inserting a device into an empty slot. The operating system should recognize the change.
Hot swap ("hot swapping" or "hot switching") - Removing a device and replacing it with an identical device. The operating system should recognize the change.

When you hot plug an Intel 1000P PCI Express network adaptor into a Windows Server 2003 computer, you are prompted to restart your computer. Device Manger shows the second PCI-PCI bridge on the network adaptor with a yellow exclamation mark.

You can safely IGNORE this message. DO NOT restart your computer.

NOTE: The second PCI-PCI bridge is not used, so you can ignore the yellow exclamation mark. If desired, uninstall it:

            Open Device Manager (Devmgmt.msc).
            Right-click the second PCI-PCI bridge deivce and press Uninstall.
            Press Yes.
